OK, i'll commit the patch to rid of false positives (threads created
before our tests even start).

But I'm not sure about the stacktrace, it doesn't seem to be useful?

For example I was trying to debug why we create so many rogue threads
on Mac OS X, and it looks like:
    [junit] WARNING: test method: 'testDemo' left thread running:
Thread[Poller SunPKCS11-Darwin,1,main]
    [junit] [java.lang.Thread.sleep(Native Method),$,]

This doesn't provide any hint that the real reason this thread is
started is FSDirectory's use of digester for getLockID().

I don't think we should use the java crypto API the way we do in
FSDirectory. Apparently whether or not it has an algorithm like MD5
depends on the java implementation (its not guaranteed), so I think we
should just include MD5Digest from bouncycastle or something like that
to avoid this.
